7. Gibson Stickers
This quality Gibson sticker set is affordable and fun. They work outdoors, too. Stick one on your own carplate to say: “Serious guitar player driving.”
8. Gibson Strings
A player can never have too many guitars. The problem is, we also need lots of strings. The Gibson Brite Wire 5-pack is thinking of y’all. Each pack contains 5 sets with a bonus – 2 extra Bs and 2 extra Es. Or get the steels preferred by Gibson heroes such as Ace Frehley and B.B. King. Tone! Check out all of our Gibson strings here!
9. Gibson Pick Tin
“Dude, where’s my pick?” It’s in a tin. “Gibson does ‘classy’ very well, and this pick tin is another good example of the company’s refined taste.” Not even Gibson’s words, but those of MusicRadar.com. 50 picks in thin, medium, heavy and extra heavy options. Grab a Gibson pick tin and put it in your gigbag/case. Check out our entire selection of Gibson picks here!

13. KRK Headphones
You’ll need good headphones too. KRK have engineered these KNS 6400 ‘phones for more of the “open” sound of a pair of monitors and less of the unnatural “closeness” that often clouds the judgement of engineers mixing on headphones.
